It was okay. The hostess was very friendly, but our server and other workers fail to interact with their customers. When we got seated it took almost 10 minutes before our server approach us and ask for our drink order. Then it took another 10 minutes for him to come back to get our food order. Once we got our food order

Wonderful food as usual. Had the lunch all you can eat. Would like to request more veggie options to be added… namely a mushroom side and a noodle side. And one more dessert option please.

Will go back! It’s one of our staple restaurants. Thank you for always having great customer service too.

The walk from our Waikiki hotel went through a dodgy area, but it was nice to get out of the tourist area.

The menu was almost overwhelming, but our sever was very helpful, especially helping me find gluten free options that hadn’t been pre-marinated. He also assisted with the at-table cooking, which we had never done before.

The meat itself was perfectly fatty and flavorful.

It was our first time here and we had an amazing time! Ed was a great server! He was attentive and friendly.
The food was also delicious. Our table enjoyed the garlic noodles, harami skirt and the beef tongue. We’re definitely looking forward to coming back in the future!

We had the all you can eat lunch special and it’s such a good deal!!! I’m a pescatarian so I didn’t try all the meats but my boyfriend said it was all good. I had an endless amount of shrimp and the salmon aka carts, it was soooo flavorful. The cheese wontons and spicy cabbage were also a fave. The staff was nice and attentive, and the s’mores were a great treat!

The food and service were good. Lots of problems with the bill. Was supposed to get a dish taken off and get a discount, but in the end, we paid full price. Didn’t want to make a scene so just paid for it in the end. This will make me think twice about going back again.
